Indo-American Cousins Sentenced 15 Years Each For Murder Conspiracy

Pratikkumar Patel and his cousin Kalpesh Patel of Gallatin city in Tennessee, received the sentence of 15 years each from Circuit Court Judge for trying to arrange the murder of Krupaben Patel, the wife of Prattikumar Patel.

WASHINGTON – Two Indo-American cousins, convicted for conspiring to commit murder of the wife of one of them in 2013, have been sentenced to 15 years each in prison by a US court, media reports said.

Pratikkumar Patel and his cousin Kalpesh Patel of Gallatin city in Tennessee, received the sentence of 15 years each from Circuit Court Judge for trying to arrange the murder of Krupaben Patel, the wife of Prattikumar Patel, wgnsradio.com reported.

They were arrested in September 2013.

The Patels were found guilty in August this year of paying Chris Robinson of Rutherford county to have Pratik’s wife killed because they couldn’t get a divorce.

Robinson instead cooperated with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, who set up a taped call with Prattikumar Patel and arrested both men.

The Patels, who owned a handful of convenience stores and gas stations in Sumner and Rutherford counties, will be eligible for parole after serving 30 per cent.
